Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service was established in 1914 after the passing of the Smith-Lever Act and in conjunction with Texas A&M University. Originally named Texas Agricultural Extension Service, then later Texas Cooperative Extension, the name Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service was adopted on January 1, 2008.
The primary mission of the A&M AgriLife Extension Service is to provide educational outreach programs and services to the citizens of Texas. In conjunction with Texas A&M AgriLife Research, the Extension faculty members conduct research and bring practical applications of those research findings to the people of Texas.
The Collin County Master Gardeners are an organization of trained volunteers that assist Texas AgriLife Extension with education and horticulture related projects.
Dr. Greg Church is the Horticultural AgriLife Extension Agent for Collin County. He provides leadership and direction for our organization.
